Margaret (Margie) Claire Pritchard, 90, Fargo, ND, and formerly Verona, ND, died on May 16, 2015.
Margaret, the youngest of 9 children, was born July 31st, 1924 in Verona, ND, the daughter of James and Margaret (Powers) Kale. Margaret graduated from LaMoure High School in 1942. On November 3, 1943 she was united in marriage to Leo C. Pritchard. They made their home on a farmstead in the Verona area where they raised their 7 children. Margaret was a member of St. Raphael’s Catholic Church and a charter member of the Jones-Benoit Legion Auxiliary.
Family, faith, the farm and her friends best sum up her life. She was the most proud of her family and she leaves them with a legacy beyond measure. Margaret enjoyed gardening, baking, walking the country roads, listening to music (especially Daniel O’Donnel) and embroidery.
She was preceded in death by her husband Leo of 53 years and their infant son. After her husband’s death, Margaret continued to live on the family farm, spending several winters in Oakes and Valley City.
For the past 9 years, Margaret resided at Riverview Place, Fargo, ND, living there independently. She made many friends while there and dearly loved the staff, especially the devoted Sisters. She also enjoyed being closer to many of her grandchildren and children during these years.
Margaret is survived by her children: Gwen (Bill), Milford, PA; Sandy (Jim), Fargo, ND; Leon, Fargo, ND; Clay (Terri), Solon, IA; Lynn, Bismarck, ND; Wayne (Lori), Verona, ND; Gerri (Brian), Minot, ND; 13 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
God Bless the memory of Margaret Claire Kale Pritchard.
